Saw this film last night. What a cracker!

42 Japanese school pupils are sent to an island and told to kill each other until one remains, a ruse to dissuade other classes from up and down the country from playing truent and running amok. Each pupil set down on the island is given provisions and a random weapon, and told that if no winner has been decided after 3 days, everybody will die. Oh, and extra incentive to play the game hard is provided in the form of a small explosive charge tied to each of the participent's necks. This can be detonated at any time by the rather sadistic PE teacher running the game (or is he military personal in disguise?).

At first the bewildered and understandably distraught pupils bond together in their usual cliques and don't really appear to know what to do. But after a very short while, panic and paranoia sets in all over the island and they began hacking each up, shooting each other, and just generally making a very bloody mess of each other's school uniforms. It's gory stuff, but a lot of black humour creeps in too.

Main characters are a young teenage couple intent on being all noble and not killing anyone. But their intention to escape of course proves fruitless, and kill they eventually have to do. Helping them is an older pupil who apparantly played the game years ago and won, and there are various other young upstarts the camera focuses on who make it to the latter stages.

The most interesting thing about the film is how each pupil reacts to the situation. Some think "Ah, I'm not playing this game!" and commit suicide. Others just sit around moping as if waiting for the three days to be up so their heads can be blown off. Another guy comically disbelieves it's actually real until he has an arrow sticking out of his belly. While others run around actually attempting to make some kills. The most notable of the latter group is a non-uniform wearing transfer student, who runs around the island seemingly non-stop gunning down everyone in his path. The man is almost reminiscent of FF7's Sephiroth, and provides the main menace among those hoping to make it to the end.

Can't praise this film enough. Best thing I've seen so far this year.

Im not really a fan of blood and gore either. I think its the story that gets me. These people are around my age. I cant imagine going to an island with one of my classes and being forced to fight until the death like that. The story is simply brilliant. I think everyone should see this movie before they die. Its a must see if you have never seen if before. gogogogogogoggogogo watch it on youtube or rend it or even buy it ^^

really? havent read the manga yet. alittle to expensive to have one story in like 15 books... i prefer novels... its odd this movie is based on a novel yet i cant seem to find a novel of it that isnt a graphic novel ( manga )

Im mad! i just watched a preview for BR II and it looks like a fricken war movie? what happend to the whole running around with a weapon thing? it was much better. How could tehy change it so much?

Nooo hehe the story takes place in the future... i dont think japan is at that point of trouble. I dont think a law like that would ever be real. Forcing 15 year olds to kill eachother. thats why the movie isnt in america. The idea of 15 year olds killing eachother was way to crazy to be released which sucks. The only reason i had seen it before was because my friends mom ordered it off ebay...

wernt you the one who asked if Battle royale was a real law, how could it be tacky when it made a viewer beleive it was real or make them ask if it was an actual act? :p

Review: I found this on a web site...


Several months ago a movie unlike any other hits theatres in Japan, everyone is talking about it, the public is shocked, the government wants to intervene and to ban it. It did not take long till word hit North America and curiosity was piqued. The supposed film was called Battle Royale and the movie had students fight to the death on a desert island, an orgy of violence depicted teenagers as the murderers. The reviews were all in agreements that this was easily the movie of the century. After several months of waiting a DVD version of decent quality was released, but is this movie level up to the hype we have previously heard? We have been used to the fact that hype was often only hype and nothing real to back it up, we tried to have no expectation when watching this movie. After watching BR we were very satisfied with the movie, a very entertaining movie with a high shock factor and a lot of deep meaning behind the violence.

The story starts off on an immoral edge, simple to follow and keeps surprises to a minimum and most importantly gives you time to better understand the characters. Overall this is a very entertaining experience and very interesting to follow, there is only a slight detail slight hole in the story near the end but we wont mention any spoilers. The movie is taken from a manga, it is most probably that the producer cut out certain things from the movie version but in general the story holds together very well and there aren't any real slow moments.

The fact that the cast that is about to kill each other are all teenagers is a shocking factor. The ways the kids kill each other can be pretty brutal from a knife to an uzi or a crossbow, all for the fight of survival. This is the real reason for the controversy around the movie is that fact that kids killing kids, in North America with all the school shootings this is an especially touchy subject. If this movie was the fight of survival between adults instead, we don't think it would have generated as movie hype. There are about 30 students thrown onto the island but the story focuses mostly 5 or 6 students and we follow their fight for survival from start to finish. The acting is great and their emotions are really visible, the context is easily understandable, what if you were stuck there and you have to kill classmates and friends alike for your own survival. As for Kitano he still remains the king, each of his appearances on screen are striking and memorable.

It is true that violence has an important place in BR but to say that the violence is shocking and hard to watch is totally false. There is nothing new or extreme when it comes to violence in BR, what is shocking about the violence is who is doing it and to who. Having innocent students forced into a situation where they must kill each other is the troubling part of the movie. Fans of violence should enjoy this movie if you don't expect splattering guts every 5 minutes else you might be really disappointed.

Violence might have a strong place in this movie but there is one thing to know it is far from being senseless violence as most people have said. Not everyone may perceive this movie in this fashion but we find there are several strong messages in the movie, certain reflections of society or human nature, this is a movie with a point to it. This movie makes brutal and dark references of the incomprehensible moments of everyday life such as fear, shyness, deception, love, jealousy, humiliation and helplessness. In this extreme situation the characters have a way out from these trivial matters and make the better of themselves and maybe become or say what they really always wanted to or to come face to face with an enemy they must fight or be killed.

In conclusion Battle Royale has far more to offer than a alot of blood and senseless violence as some would say. Some may not like this movie while others will completely adore it but one thing is certain this is a movie that will not be forgotten. If you like Japanese cinema which is not scared of showing true violence with the emotions that go along with it, then you will probably enjoy this one. If you are looking for a movie with shocking action you can give BR a chance, you might be pleasantly surprised and for sure entertained. Oh! and just for Kitano`s fans, this movie is worth it.

Overall
4.5 out of 5

hey you wont be able to find it in the U.S. unless it has been imported. it was never released in the U.S. the idea of 15 year olds killing eachother disturbed the film rating people. I have looked at best buy.com, Fye.com and all them and no sign of it there. kinda sucks. what i did was downloaded the DVD quality version off limewire...

hmm yeah i agree why cant i we have this movie? instread were stuck with flops like Crossroads XD it really isnt fair

here is a list of used and new from amazon.com

a new copy is $9.99
a used copy is $7.99

i suggest you read the reviews of the people who ordered so you can tell who will actualyl send you it and who will send you a bootleg.

20-06-06, 01:28
7.99 for a new one. That's really good. Too bad I'm not allowed to order over the internet. Maybe I can get my uncle to do it.... hmmm. I dont understand this. We have half naked women dancing on Mtv while a guy talks about shooting cops/raping women/etc. and that's exceptable but we cant get a movie with deep meaning just because a few old people find it to "controversial". On a scale of 1 to 10 how much gore is there?

Lenochka
20-06-06, 01:32
hmm lets see.... there is alot of blood. usually i get sick when i see a movie that is to gory. but on this one i actually didnt mind it i would have to say 6/10 1 being no gore and 10 being so gory its unbarable. but alot of the gore is really breif. like shown within a few seconds or it is really fake looking blood. still a great movie none the less.

hey i just thought i would share this ^^
i was lookign around and found an awsome screensaver. its so cool ^^

here is a discription from the creater:
" What's this screensaver about?
Essentially, it puts you into the shoes of Kitano and you periodically receive 'updates' on activities within the island via an interface. Eventually, the system gets 'hacked' and all data is lost and the system 'reboots' (which loops the screensaver). It's a pretty linear experience (wished I had time to make an interactive one) but it's a fun way to relive moments from the movie. There's no audio within the screensaver as I want to keep the file size small. "

Paperdoll

Was she friends with any of them, she seemed not to care who she killed. She lasted very long aswell

Lenochka
20-06-06, 17:01

Paperdoll
20-06-06, 17:01
I can't remember the movie that well but in the manga she had a few "friends" with whom she had a sort of prostitution business.

jarhead
20-06-06, 17:09
well that suits her down to the ground. im glad she didnt die more brutaly then getting shot. perhaps a pickaze to the head, hacking away maybe, or poisioning real slow. :D

oh yeah! she is a was alittle like one prostitute. She slept around and was pimping out other girls or so it seems. One of the girls what was her name... Hirono. in the movie she is yelling at mitsuko. Hirono says " F****** all the boys, but had to steal mine. You were pimping yoshimi, "

yer, in the second movie - *spoiler*

do the 2 survivors start their won terrorist group, and a choose class have to fight agaianst them??- im kinda confused by it all

Lenochka
20-06-06, 18:08
yeah the second one got horrible reviews...

jarhead
20-06-06, 18:12
oh - well i guess i wont be watching that then. and IUMO the film isnt that gory, ive seen 15 rated films with more gore and horror :o . wonder if people thought that this could happen, hence the ban and the heavy certificate

Lenochka
20-06-06, 18:14
ban? what ban?

jarhead
20-06-06, 18:17
wasnt the film banned?

Lenochka
20-06-06, 18:41
no not banned. just no U.S. movie distributers wanted to lisence it or whatever. this movie came out after the columbine incident. They were afriad that if another school shooting were to take place tehy could blame the movie. kinda like how people blamed GTA for violence. They might do the same because Battle Royale is supposably the first moive in history to have kids killing other kids...

I really fear for the future of cinema if this is the kind of thing people are liking.
Tacky indeed, could not exist a better word for it.

Well I think it's a big 3-disc extravaganza that adds on an extra 20 mins to the original film blah blah, but even so, I'm still going to wait until it drops below 15.
